Xbox Game Pass Adds Remastered Classics And Spooky Adventures
Full Throttle, Five Nights at Freddy's, and Celeste are just some of this month's Xbox Game Pass highlights.
Xbox Game Pass is expanding its library once again, with a selection of games for Xbox One, PC, and Android devices all available now. Remastered classics and a few scarier games highlight the additions, which include developer Sunhead's charming exploration and puzzle game Carton.
On the classic side you can experience remastered versions of some of the best games from LucasArt's golden age of point 'n click adventures, such as Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, and Grim Fandango. If you'd prefer something spookier, cult classic Five Nights at Freddy's will remind you to never trust animatronic fast food mascots.
Roguelite platformer ScourgeBringer and PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds join Xbox Game Pass on Android, and Unruly Heroes arrived today, while modern helicopter shooter Comanche, co-op first-person shooter Deep Rock Galactic, and the leisurely exploration game Eastshade will be available from November 5. If you'd like to push your thumbs and your mind to their very breaking point while engaging in a touching story of overcoming the mountain in front of you, Celeste has you covered on that day as well.
On November 17 you'll be able to experience a prehistoric and brutal world in Ark: Survival Evolved: Explorer's Edition. This version combines the base game with the Scorched Earth, Aberration, and Extinction expansion packs. Each expansion will also be available as separate downloads.
Here's the full list of Game Pass games coming to a variety of platforms that support the subscription service:
